The Richland County Chapter of the American Red Cross has opened a warming center to help residents during this extreme cold.

It's open Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Chapter House in the Community Services building on North Park Street in downtown Mansfield.

Disaster Program Specialist Julie Frim says they have a large supply of snacks, coffee, and hot chocolate.

Based on usage of past warming centers, she expects up to 20 people to come in. Frim says most of the visitors would be those whose power is out, or have low incomes and don't want to run their furnaces at a temperature high enough to keep them warm.

The Wooster Chapter of the American Red Cross has also opened a warming center at its chapter house at 244 W. South Street until 4 p.m. Monday.
